A Girly Road Trip with Yankee Candle

I used to hate driving. I found it a waste of my time and purely used it to get from A to B but that was partly to do with the fact that I was driving an old rust bucket that was for the most part covered in wrappers and smelt a bit funky!

Last year I upgraded my car (*editors note* she was forced to get a new one as her old car finally kicked the bucket!) for a nice shiny new one and driving suddenly became a lot more fun. I take pride in my new car treating it to a wash every month and making sure it stays lovely and clean. But I never really invested in a proper car scent until now – hands up who just uses the crappy little cardboard ones your car wash throws in for free and hates the smell every time they get in!

Introducing the new Yankee Candle Charming Scents refillable lockets! These adorable little accessories clip around your mirror and contain a scented disk which gently fills your entire car with one of Yankee Candles traditional scents. And the best part is, they look super cute too! Once you’ve bought your locket starter kit you can then swap out the fragrance disc whenever you like and keep your car smelling gorgeous for up to a month each time.

I gave one of the Yankee Candle Charming Scent Lockets to my friend Ellie in her adorable banana yellow Fiat 500 to inspire a little girly road trip for the weekend! So we packed our suitcases, got in the car and took a drive to for a relaxing couple of days away from it all!

Our Charming Scent was clean cotton which just reminds me of freshly laundered crisp white sheets and fluffy robes, so the obvious place for our road trip was A SPA!

We enjoyed a weekend of swimming in the pool, soaking in the hot tub, relaxing in the sauna and enjoying hot stone massages in their treatment rooms.

It’s amazing what an impromptu road trip can do for the soul! Both of us didn’t realise how much we needed this until we got there but it was heaven!

And of course we couldn’t forget the scent that inspired our spa trip all along, our clean cotton sheets in the hotel room! And those fluffy robes which we spent the entire two days in!!!

We both completely relaxed during our time at the spa and chatted away all evening – sometimes you need to just drive somewhere, get away for a night and push yourself out of that little bubble you’ve created for yourself in order to truly let loose and chill out.

If clean cotton inspired a glorious spa break, imagine where some of the other scents could inspire us to go!
